We sure could use someone to greet the members as they arrive and give them an overview of the area and activities.

That would be VERY MUCH appreciated! thumbup

Only one problem I see with October through Mid November, its going to conflict with allot of big game hunts.. The turn out might not be near as good as a Jan hunt.. I think most of the big game hunts are Sept, Oct and Nov..
I would rather hunt a coyote than a stinky old deer any day, so it would really wouldn't matter to me..
Also, there are folks that have already burnt up a week of vacation on one hunt this year and possibly their vacation wont reset till Jan?? Just food for thought..

Plus, with the holidays coming, money might be tight. Kids and Christmas, deer and big game seasons, would take a high priority for many.

After the first of the year it's tax return time and many vacation calendars are reset. LOL!

I am not real picky except during my elk hunts which are early Oct and then during Nov. I would like to know what the date is like the others so I could make plans.

I know when is a very important fact. I'm still wondering WHERE!! Los Cruces?

Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution.

If we just get a list of guys with experience, and make another list of guys who feel they don't have as much experiance, and then simply draw names and merry them up, and make a list of who will be hunting with who.

A little member profile might be in order too.

Some guys are chomping at the bit to get out and be hunting at the crack of dawn and getting in as many stands as possible before dark.

Others are content to drag out, get a big breakfast made a few stands, head in for lunch and then maybe get a stand or too before supper.

If you "marry" one of each of these types, they might be info for a miserable hunt.

Nothing wrong with either of these styles, but not compatible at all. I tend to fall in the first category. If I come that far, I want to get in as many stands as possible. I can eat that evening or when I get home for that matter. I also tend to be a "stop the truck, run out and start calling, and move on to the next spot" type of hunter.

If I am always at the set up, or back at the truck waiting on the other guy, I'm impatient. On the other hand, the other guys is wondering what is that guys problem? Can't he slow down a little, my feet hurt?"

Another factor in pairing up hunters is health issues.. some of us (namely me) can't walk long distances and don't want to slow down others... I'm content to find a spot and spend an hour trying to call something in, while most are 10-15 minute stand types and like to move fast....

I know at the last Hunt, due to blood pressure problems caused by the increased elevation, I had to be pretty inactive for the first couple of days and didn't get out until almost time to leave... but fortunately the guys that I went with were okay with me hanging back while they went out a lot farther... I just had to keep track of their general locations..which they had communicated ahead of time..

It doesn't mean I didn't have a good time, I just don't want to be a bother to anyone else..I got to meet a lot of great people and see some of the local sights..

Good points.

Perhaps a board that has participants...Experienced on one side, inexperienced on the other, and let them pair up during a discussion hour event about that next days hunt.

That way, they can see expectations before leaving, and if a change needs to be made, it can be made then, before the hunt of the day?
